A Nashville jury today awarded TV personality Erin Andrews $55 million in her suit filed against the man who secretly recorded her through a peephole in her room at Nashville Marriott in 2008, and the hotel owner and operator. Attorneys for Andrews, including Randall Kinnard of Nashville, argued that the hotel enabled Michael David Barrett, who pleaded guilty to a federal stalking charge in 2009. The Tennessean reports Barrett and the hotel’s owner and operator will split the cost of the award.
